Description: The course gives an overview of wavelets (or coherent states) construction and its realisations in applied and pure mathematics. After a short introduction to wavelets based on the representation theory of groups we will consider:

The variety of applications is essentially grouped just around three groups: the Heisenberg group, SL2(R), and ax+b group.

This course is suitable for postgraduate students in both applied and pure mathematics.
